Radisson Blu à Disneyland® Paris
What We Love
- Stay right by the magical sights and sounds of France's popular theme park, in a family roomThe peaceful location, but still only a 10-minute shuttle bus to Disneyland® Paris
- Making the most of the hotel's indoor pool, sauna and steam room after a busy day at the parks
- Dining on continental deliciousness on Pamplemousse restaurant's terrace in sunny weather
Disneyland® is always magical for kids – both the young and young at heart. Located on the manicured greenery of the Disneyland® Paris Golf Course, a mere 10-minute drive from the theme park itself (thanks to the hotel’s complimentary shuttle service), the Radisson Blu à Disneyland® Paris guarantees easy access to fun-filled attractions as much as it does pretty and peaceful surrounds – perfect for those looking to spend a wild and wonderful day out, yet enjoy a good night’s sleep.
There’s a wellness centre on site with a fitness area, steam room and sauna, alongside an indoor swimming pool, so there’s plenty to keep yourself entertained once the kids have gone to bed. Start your day with a buffet breakfast at La Birdie restaurant, before heading to Disneyland for a day bursting with fun and wonder. On your return, you could head to Pamplemousse restaurant for contemporary and continental cuisine, before retiring to your room for movies in bed.
How to Get There
I needed a hotel close to the parks and the fact that they run a shuttle from the train/bus station sealed the deal for me.
Upon check in, they upgraded me to a suite due to my Radisson status, which was a welcome surprise. I don't know if the pillow spray is standard, but it was something I have never experienced before and I tried it and it was not for me.
The breakfast is extra and worth a lot of points but I used points for it anyway. It was a fairly good spread with a fresh omelet station.
They have water available in the afternoon but either they run out of water and cups or it's a hot mess because people don't know where to put their used cups.
I also did a massage facial at the spa and did not find it to be a pleasant experience. I wouldn't recommend it, especially for that price. Don't go to the spa.
The stay overall was mostly fine and I found it a welcome alternative to the convenience of staying a little bit closer. The shuttle comes regularly. They say you have to book it in the morning, which I did, but no one checked my ticket.
We stayed at the Radisson Blu while visiting Disneyland, Paris. The hotel is located close to the park and has frequent, convenient shuttles. Our French is extremely limited, so the staff graciously spoke to us in English.
The room we were given was on the 3rd floor, with a parking lot view. The room was spacious and clean.
The first night at the hotel, we ate dinner in the restaurant. The service was excellent, but as expected, the prices were very expensive.
The second night we decided to visit the lobby bar. The menu had both food and drinks. When we arrived, ALL of the empty tables were full of dirty dishes and glasses. After waiting for some time, I went to the bar to order two drinks, one cocktail and one hot chocolate. There was one bartender, who was very pleasant, but methodically slow. It was apparent that the bar was understaffed.
It took quite awhile to get our drinks and after finishing them, it took at least 30 minutes to get our bill. Sadly, none of the tables were cleaned the entire time we sat in the bar. We watched at least 2 parties of people leave the bar prior to being served due to the poor service.
The next morning, we needed to get to the Disneyland, Paris train station for the 9:15 AM Magic Kingdom shuttle bus to Orly Airport. The evening concierge told us that we should get a taxi since the hotel shuttle might be delayed. He said the cost would be €15 then changed it to €20, saying Sunday was considered a holiday. I thought that was quite expensive for the 3-4 mile drive, but I agreed. In checking the Uber app, their price would have been approximately €8. This is something to consider.
The hotel was outstanding, the lobby bar and concierge taxi recommendation need a lot of work.
If you are going to Disneyland or the train do not stay at this hotel as there shuttles don’t run very early or very late. We also somehow had 2 rooms booked and they wouldn’t cancel the one reservation. We had to pay for both rooms.
